PERSONAL INTERESTS

OUR HISTORY

THE BEGINNING

“The whole thing started in my practice, where I do a lot of facial plastic surgery. I was looking for products that can improve healing post-op for face lifts, eye jobs, and things like that. For many years I was looking for products and I wasn’t finding that would do the job properly, until I started working with scientists on a product to protect astronauts from skin damage. The scientists helped me create the first product called Dramatic Healing Serum. We give it to all our patients after surgery to use from the second post-operative day for six weeks. I have seen a tremendous improvement on the rate of healing, decrease of swelling and bruising, and the improvement of the scar.” - Dr. Yannis Alexandrides.  

From there, NAC Y²™ was born, a complex that includes a trio of actives with superior antioxidant capabilities, one of which stimulates the production of Glutathione – the body’s most powerful intracellular antioxidant. The superior results included epidermal strengthening, scar reduction and a more youthful appearance. Used as the core of every product in the Reparative range and included in several other ranges, NAC Y²™ has come to embody the principal of 111SKIN - innovative science that yields unrivalled results.  

OUR STORY

As a practising surgeon Dr. Yannis saw the opportunity of developing skincare treatments that both recreate and complement aesthetic treatments in the clinic, for a more holistic approach to beauty. For Dr. Yannis it’s about beauty and quality of skin, with a focus on understanding the ageing process inside and out. The ability to accelerate skin’s function to heal means greater health and wellness. Supplements, efficacious spa treatments and whole-body cryotherapy are a few examples of how this philosophy has inspired 111SKIN product innovation. Eva advances 111SKIN’s purpose and sustainability commitments through the many facets of the brand. Creating clean and efficacious products, instilling environmentally leading practices and fostering a healthy community with a commitment to raising women up.

THE JOURNEY

In June 2012 and starting with selected products from our now established Reparative range we launched in the beauty halls of Harrods, London. We started with a singular shelf at the back of the beauty hall and 2 members of staff that were dedicated to establishing the brand with Harrod's clientele. For the first 3/4 years we were exclusive to Harrods and were focused on delivering the passion and research behind the brand. With our customers being the focus behind our range and their feedback being fundamental to the growth of the brand, we developed a range that grew from their feedback such as the light version of our bestselling product the Y Theorem Serum NAC Y².

WHERE WE ARE TODAY

Positioned in leading luxury spaces and an international presence that is coveted by fashion designers, make-up artists and supermodels alike, 111SKIN formulates its skincare to deliver a no filter confidence. We are located in some of the most prestigious retail spaces and leading spa resorts and hotels worldwide.

The focus for the future is to continue to deliver unprecedented quality and results to our clients and customers as well as positioning ourselves as the leading global skincare brand that is surgically inspired, science led and drives clinical results.
